Praised by Publisher's Weekly as one of the best debut books of the year, Robert Clark's evocative novel is a moving tale of a middle-aged man's hard-fought struggle with his conscience and his closest family relationships. In the Deep Midwinter portrays a midwestern man caught in the shifting values and lifestyles of the post World War II era. Richard MacEwan has the best of all lives-a successful law practice, a beautiful wife, an intelligent daughter, and a lively grandson on whom he dotes. But when his brother James dies suddenly in a hunting accident, Richard begins to uncover truths that shake the foundation of his life and those closest to him. With elegant lyricism, Robert Clark hauntingly portrays the effects on one family when love clashes with values. George Guidall's masterful narration brings each member of the MacEwan family to life. In the Deep Midwinter will be remembered and savored long after the last word is spoken.
